Sidney Rice undergoes hip surgery

That didn't take long.

Less than ten hours after news broke that Vikings wideout Sidney Rice was strongly considering hip surgery, Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Rice has already undergone the procedure. Rice confirmed to Scoggins it "went well" via text message.

The Vikings have every right to be furious with how this was handled. Judd Zulgad of the Star-Tribune was speaking in SIRIUS NFL radio Tuesday as the news broke and speculated that Rice's lack of a contract resulted in the delay and that Rice likely opted for the procedure because he's only making $550,000.

Florio also points out (on his way to the PFT Daily batcave) that the timing of the decision is interesting in relation to Brett Favre. Would Favre have come back if his No. 1 receiver was out half the season?
